Shawn Drayton wanted to have clothes that he could bike in during his dialy commute from Brooklyn to Manhattan. He wanted something that was practical for biking, but also for walking around in. And so Osloh was born. Shawn works as a designer of children clothes while promoting Oshloh on the side. The line, which was just launched this past July, features three different styles of mens’ pants and bicycle-focused V-neck t-shirts. The pants have adjustable snaps at the calves so you don’t have to roll up your pant leg while riding, and two rings above the left rear pocket for holding a U-lock. Shawn thinks that if bikers see something that “doesn’t look like like spandix or a racing jersey, they’re going to be all for it.”
Shawn’s designs will sold at the HUB starting tomorrow, and they’ll also be featured in our show on Saturday, October 24.
